One of the most critical parts of survival is the warmth, protection and cooking ability of a fire. There is no other part of your survival arsenal that will provide you with as much as fire will. It can protect you from the cold, protect you from wild animals, fire will lift your spirits, boil your water and will even help signal for your rescue. So, what’s more important than fire? How you start the fire. Fire is a great concept but if you don’t have what you need to create it than its merely a concept.
